Posted on 06/09/2012 12:21:35 PM PDT by kristinn
US Weekly is the latest media outlet to withdraw an article about the Obamas. Friday evening, the celebrity gossip magazine posted an article online entitled Sasha Obama Hosts 11th Birthday Party at Red Robin.
The article has since been pulled, but the URL with the title remains in Google search: http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/sasha-obama-hosts-11th-birthday-party-at-red-robin-201286. Clicking through gives this message from US: "OOPS! The page youre looking for isnt here. But dont give up!", followed by instructions to use their search engine.
The text of the pulled article read:
Sasha Obama is excited about turning 11 -- so much so that the First Daughter celebrated the occasion several days early at Red Robin in Dulles, Virginia!
President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama's youngest daughter -- whose actual birthday is June 10 -- joined her mother, 48, older sister Malia, 13, and 10 friends for a low-key birthday bash last week, Us Weekly can confirm.

The group dined on a variety of items, including chicken sandwiches, cheeseburgers with avocado and milkshakes. "Before leaving the restaurant, the First Lady left a generous tip for the server and tapped management on the shoulder to let them know 'everything was wonderful and the girls had a great time,'" a source adds.

The girls' father, Barack, 50, was not in attendance -- not that he wasn't there in spirit. He's currently in the midst of a reelection campaign, and on June 7, the former Illinois senator met with 25 young Hollywood stars -- including Jessica Alba, 31, Zachary Quinto, 35, DiannaAgron, 26, Ian Somerhalder, 33, and Sophia Bush, 29 -- at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

"Just spent my morning with [POTUS] talking about green energy, a better America and being a young American," Vampire Diaries star Somerhalder tweeted. "Wow."

The article was picked up last night by Yahoo! Movies and was online there as of this writing.
The Obama administration has successfully cowed the media into disappearing articles about public travels by the Obama children this year. Articles about eldest daughter Malia's Mexico vacation with classmates from Sidwell Friends school were taken down under pressure for alleged security and privacy reasons. Last month articles and a photograph about Malia attending a One Direction concert in Fairfax, Virginia, were similarly pulled. Now this article about Sasha's birthday party at a public restaurant accompanied by her mother, the First Lady.
The Obamas pick and choose when they want their daughters in the spotlight. In February, the Obama reelection campaign started running Web ads featuring Sasha and Malia with their parents.

The Obama campaign is selling campaign buttons and refrigerator magnets with the same photo of the Obama children with their parents. The image is a taxpayer funded photograph taken by official White House photographer Pete Souza.
Something else iv’e noticed... Perusing articles in my hometown paper (Houston Chronicle), i have only seen
scant few articles with Obamas name . First noticed this
a few months ago. After the initial thought , i started
looking for Obamas name... there would be maybe a whole week
before the name Obama would show in the online version.
"Us Weekly goon gets torn up by [Fox News] Megyn Kelly"
[over their bogus story on Palin]:
Note: UsWeekly = UsMagazine.
These are the left-wing slime balls who ran the bogus article on Palin:
"US Weekly", on the other hand, is a terrific, hard-hitting must-see anti-Obama website:
LOL...you left out the *bottomless* baskets of steak fries. :) 18g FAT.
TomSrvo, You’re the first of several who refer to this as a ‘vanity’ thread. I don’t see it as any different than the myriad NewsBusters threads. How is this a ‘vanity?’
Before leaving the restaurant, the First Lady left a generous tip for the server....
Where did she get the money? Does she work?
Yes - I care. When the Mooch is telling all of us what WE need to eat & how to feed our kids. Every chance this creepy family has - they are loading up on what they call 'junk food & ice cream' for us & our kids.
The Mooch has wormed her way into a gig on Restaurants Impossible on the Food Network this Wednesday night.
I resent them pushing her agenda. We hear enough fron both of them hogging TV face time as it is, without infringing on programs that I like to watch.
I am totally sick of their socialist propaganda being supported by the media.
When it's our money, it's our business. And we can discuss the waste of money, etc, without bashing the kids.
Just as SeeBS-Viacom’s David Letterman show can crack jokes about Sarah Palin’s daughter getting knocked up by major league baseball players.
The media is partisan. Boycott the lot of them. Defunding is the only way to get this double standard to end.
“The group dined on a variety of items, including chicken sandwiches, cheeseburgers with avocado and milkshakes.”
One and done for us! Over rated, and with this little event, they are a little out of my range politically as are Olive Garden, Red Lobster, and Home Depot!
No kidding, there was probably a pic in the article showing her chowing down on some fat greasy cheeseburgers like Slimer from Ghostbusters.
this trip to RR was at our expense.
You have the Secret Service protection details for the First Moocher, and the children.
That includes the advance party that goes in and secures the site, as well as a route recon of the primary and alternate routes taken by the motorcade. Then there is the local PD which would be involved, etc.
Top it off, it was more than likely paid by a government credit card.
This was a very appropriate event and there is no reason why the public shouldn’t know about it. You are absolutely correct in calling the news media subservient. This administration knows it’s in trouble with the public, so they want to bury every event when it’s not necessary. They are hiding much more than they need to and this feeds everone’s suspicions.
“Nobody cared when all the other presidents kids had parties.”
You’re right. The media only cares when Republican presidents’ kids had parties.
Republican governors’ kids, too.
“I dont blame them for doing a media blackout on this one.”
Trust the media, that’s the ticket.
Well, damnit! The MSM, as well as the phony president’s cronies won’t leave the children of conservatives alone!
Malia’s Mexico birthday bash wasn’t scrubbed.
